Revolutionary Relief for Leg Pain

On July 14, Salinas Valley Health was one of just two medical centers in the nation to perform the new FDA-approved procedure. Dr. Joye and our incredible cath lab team performed the DETOUR procedure on two patients. Both were discharged on the same day.

The DETOUR procedure is a groundbreaking technique pioneered by Jim Joye, DO, that treats blocked arteries in the leg, offering much-needed relief from debilitating pain. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is an epidemic, particularly in the Monterey County area, causing agonizing leg pain for patients while walking and posing a risk for ulcers, gangrene and amputation. But the DETOUR procedure now puts hope within reach.

The noninvasive percutaneous transarterial bypass treats complex PAD with a specialized stent, swiftly restoring blood flow and providing immediate pain relief.
